The shoulder is an incredibly flexible and multifaceted
ball-and-socket joint in our body. This flexibility is possible
because the socket part of the joint is fairly shallow. It
requires a cluster of four tendons (which is known as the
rotator cuff) to clutch the ball tightly in the socket when you
raise and rotate your arms.
The most common injury of the shoulder is the rotator cuff tear, and because of its complexity, shoulder joint surgery is rather complicated, painful, and needs a prolonged rehabilitation period. Regenerative medicine might give you the chance to evade surgery and use stem cells to heal your rotator cuff tear. Shoulder pain is quite common, but the surgery carries serious risks. The cost of the surgery is also comparatively higher. Often times, surgeries fail to restore mobility and functionality fully.
Amputating shoulder joints and replacing it with artificial shoulder joints (made of metal, plastic, or ceramic) is a complex surgery process with serious side effects that exceed the side effects in any other treatment procedure. Moreover, shoulder replacement surgeries are not known for their 100% success rate, which is why many patients hesitate to try this alternative.
Treating Severe Shoulder Arthritis—Without Any Joint Replacement Surgery
Using a precise medical imaging system, we inject amniotic stem
cells and growth factors directly into the injured part of the
body. This way, we are able to direct adequate natural healing
force of the body directly towards the degeneration.
By activating your body’s own healing mechanism and eradicating the need for painful surgery, we give hope to patients who are seeking reliable treatment alternatives for conditions like partial rotator cuff tears.
Regenerative medicine can show encouraging results even with severely damaged retracted rotator cuff tears as well. Using your body’s self-healing methods to ease your shoulder pain and treat a rotator cuff tear is an excellent alternative to any surgery.
